lyrics

gravity plays favorites
i know it 'cause i saw
honest to god, officer
it's awful

down at work i'm getting
too familiar with the floor
trading in my talents
by the mouthful

hate to break it to you
but it's out of my control
forces go to work
while we are sleeping

if i could attack with
a more sensible approach
obviously that's what
i'd be doing.... right?

now
necks are cracking sideways
hit me from the back side
i am on the white side
you are on the black side
out a piece that's bite size
shoot me from my good side
if you want a straight line
this'd be a good time

gravity works slowly if you
notice it at all
some of us are getting
mighty lucky
aren't we
if you had to live with this
you'd rather lie than fall
you think i can't fly?
well you just watch me

necks are cracking sideways
hit me from back side
i am on the thin side
you are on the fat side
cut a piece that's bite size
shoot me from my bad side
if you want a straight line
this'd be a good time

the sky is always falling down on me
so officer,
forgive me
please
